This is my first build. I plan to use it through college for gaming and moderate photo editing, and light-moderate video editing. But mostly gaming and multitasking. Budget is not too big of an issue, but I don't wanna buy like 10 titan xps for no reason lol. I was hoping to get some feedback on this forum? (Possible bottlenecks, suggestions, FAN PLACEMENT, etc.)

Ah. Don't bump. It was posted 20 mins ago.

Good build, but for that stuff I'd push for 850w or so to be safe.

Just some notes. More ram the better for you.
Get more storage In HDD just to store unneeded or finished files.

Another monitor or 2 would help with the workflow. Also, a ultrawide is also nice. You can get ones with really nice image quality. If you look at my build here

You can see that I have lots of extra storage and ram. I also have a gaming monitor and a widescreen for video editing, as I will be making videos and he widescreen helps with streaming, recording, and editing.

You can put a bigger SSD or better HDD for the same price as you had above, and even upgrade the CPU cooler or PSU.
